Marsai Martin through her Genius Entertainment is teaming up with Walden Media to adapt Ingrid Law’s children’s fantasy novel Savvy as a TV series.

Based up the book published in 2008 by Penguin Random House and Walden Media, it tells the story of Mibs Beaumont who is super excited about becoming a teenager but it gets even more exciting, it officially launches her to the supernatural world as she gets to discover her own hidden power – reading minds – which of course comes with exciting challenges for a teen.

Martin is developing the adaptation with The Chronicles of Narnia producer Walden Media.

“Although this story is laced with supernatural characteristics, at its core it’s the story of a young girl trying to unlock her potential, something that we can all relate to, with or without superpowers,” said Martin. “This novel has resonated with children for over a decade, and we’re honored to have the opportunity to partner with Marsai Martin, one of the youngest producers in Hollywood, to bring this story to a new generation. Savvy is an exciting read, and will be equally as thrilling when brought to life on screen” said Walden CEO Frank Smith.
